The USS Boxer (pictured above) has been ordered to deploy to the Iran region. It will be the second Amphibious Assault ship in the region, joining the USS Kearsage.
It is not known if the Boxer will replace the Kearsage, or if both vessels will continue operations in the area.
It is also not known why Amphibious Assault ships have been sent there AT ALL; unless someone is contemplating an actual Amphibious assault . . .
